Since I write novels for young adults, I like to keep current with books written for kids. This book was sent to me by Thomas Nelson Publishing.
Author Kathleen Fuller began writing historical and contemporary novels for adults, before switching to Amish fiction. A Summer Secret is her first novel for children.
A Summer Secret is the first book in the Mysteries of Middlefield series. This novel follows Mary Beth Mullet, a 13-year-old Amish girl who endures the not-so-welcome attentions of her three brothers.
Mary Beth finds some peace by sneaking away to an old barn where she can journal and draw privately. But her solitude comes to an end when her twin brother follows her, and the twins discover a runaway sleeping in the barn.
